Writer, actress team for prison series ‘Orange’

NEW YORK — Piper Kerman sits next to Taylor Schilling, the woman playing Kerman’s younger self on Netflix’s new original series, “Orange Is the New Black.”

The two could pass for cousins. They’re both impeccably dressed for media appearances, their blond hair styled, their smiles genuine. They order the same salad for lunch (tuna Nicoise). Kerman is relieved to wear flats to her interview, while Schilling slips her heels off as soon as she sits down at the table.
